When would it make sense for me to book a trip on a Community Connector vehicle?
Here are some scenarios when it would make sense to use the service:
a. You’re having an issue with your car and need to get to the Missouri City SH6 Park & Ride lot to catch the 170 Missouri City service.
b. You reside at the Springfield apartments and regularly require transportation to attend services at Cornerstone Baptist Church.
c. You need a ride to the Missouri City Shopping Center so you don’t have to deal with the hassle of driving.
In Trinity Gardens (Northeast Houston):
a. You’re taking a night class at HCC Northline. You can take the Route 29 back to Kashmere Transit Center, but your connecting route doesn’t run late enough to get you home.
b. You want to attend an evening Astros game downtown. You can take the Route 51/52 back to Kashmere Transit Center, but your connecting route doesn’t run late enough to get you home.
c. You work at Memorial City Mall until closing. You can take the Route 26 back to Kashmere Transit Center, but your connecting route doesn’t run late enough to get you home.
